Welcome to Holladay
A bustling, yet peaceful town with a host of community events and festivals
Holladay, Utah is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the Salt Lake Valley. Less than 20 minutes from Salt Lake City, Holladay brings together the best of urban amenities and suburban recreation. In the winter, Holladay is a true ski town, with proximity to several of the Wasatch Mountain ski runs. In the summer, the town offers just as much opportunity to get outdoors, with hiking and biking trails, golf courses, and local parks to explore.
Homes in Holladay encapsulate a variety of styles, from charming ranch homes to lodge-style mansions, and modern estates. The neighborhood has an exclusive feel, though all are welcome to call it home. High-end restaurants and local ski resorts give the town upscale energy, while family-friendly festivals keep the community grounded and connected.
